Bishop Dress with Madeira Hem

I finally completed the bishop dress for Martha Pullen's Feb. 2011 School! The dress is made from pattern #135 and is part of the "Smocking/Construction School", where we will learn how to construct a bishop and add the Madeira hem.

The pretty pink and green print and the green gingham are both from "Sew Beautiful." The floral fabric was easy to pleat and smocked beautifully. This was a fun project to work on over the weekend during the many football games and while I was recovering from jet lag!

Love the dress. Question have you pleated cordurory before? Is it hard to do? Just wondering. Am working on smocking a Santa on two Christmas dresses. One dress will be green gingham and the other will be red.
